Fantastic pie. I used 1 cup of flour with 4 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp sugar, a handful of walnuts, and lots of cinnamon and nutmeg for the crust, which I made in the food processor. I pressed that into the 9" pan to make a crumbly and rich crust. I also used apples instead of pears, which I sliced into eighths and arranged in two concentric circles. For the batter, I used only about 1/2 cup sugar and a little less butter than called for as well. It turned out delicious and not too unhealthy. Can't wait to try it with pears. Served it with vanilla ice cream, but I think whipped cream with diced crystallized ginger will also be great. Fantastic recipe that lends itself to a lot of variation.
